Surgical Hair Restoration
Dr. Bradley Kurgis performs hair restoration procedures on patients nationally and internationally. He is an acknowledged authority on hair transplantation. He has developed and taught techniques for hair replacement that accentuate a natural appearance. Many physicians have traveled to study with Dr. Kurgis. He is a founding doctor of one of the largest hair transplant medical groups in the world. He has appeared on radio and television shows to discuss his hair transplant techniques.
He and his trained staff have performed over 9000 hair restoration procedures, and are thrilled to offer you the best hair care available today. Hair transplants require artistry, experience, and patient care; Dr. Kurgis and his staff provide their patients with all three. The artistic excellence of Dr. Kurgis and his staff was achieved through rigorous training and years of experience. Dr. Kurgis has been a transplant surgeon for 16 years. In fact, he is a diplomat of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, making him one of less than 20 board-certified hair restoration surgeons in California.
Restoration will help eliminate a visible sign of aging: hair loss. You can look years younger and participate in all of your usual activities without the worry of your scalp showing through. The joy of having your own permanent, natural growing head of hair cannot be duplicated by any other means. Patients report a resurgence of self-confidence and self-esteem.
The Art of Hair Restoration
Artistry is what you get when you see Dr. Kurgis. As a board certified hair transplant surgeon and the founder of Hair Transplant Seattle, he takes great pride in his artistry of creating natural hairlines, achieving amazingly natural results and helping his patients regain the appearance they’ve been looking for.
Patients meet directly with Dr. Kurgis who takes a very holistic approach to caring for his patients. He counsels each individual on appropriate diet and supplements not only for their “hair health” but also for their general well-being and longevity.
Today there are still many misconceptions about hair transplantation, the results that can be achieved and the process by which the procedure is performed. With Dr. Kurgis those misconceptions are gone; people will only know you’ve had a hair transplant if you tell them.
But patients should not be fooled with promises of new machines or instruments doing hair transplants. “The instruments are developed to aid the doctor,” says Dr. Kurgis. “Ultimately, natural results are achieved by the surgeon who has the surgical and aesthetic skill to create results that are completely natural.”
Hair transplantation is not just for men. Many women also experience hair loss or are born with a high hairline that can be treated with hair transplantation.
Surgical Hair Restoration Details
Hair transplantation is the most cost-effective solution to the problem of hair loss. Micro and follicular units offer a permanent, natural hairline that no one can tell is a hair transplant. However, not all grafts are created equal. Many other hair restoration groups produce cosmetically unacceptable hairlines. It is no longer necessary to accept the “toothbrush” or “plug” look. Follicular units are created by Dr. Kurgis and his staff through a delicate technique. It mimics the natural look of how hair grows. Our technique produces a soft, virtually undetectable hairline. Procedures are generally completed within a few hours, and typically you can return to work the following day.
How the Procedure Works
The follicular unit of the adult human scalp consists of 1–4 terminal (full thickness) hair follicles. Dr Kurgis transplants hair in the same “bundle” in which they grew previously. Individual hairs are often best for the frontal hairline and in “transition” zones where bald and hair bearing areas meet. However, density is achieved by placing naturally occurring follicular groups that will provide the most coverage.
